What is "normal climate"? In NY, and now NB, it has seemed normal to me. In NY we had a spring, summer, fall and a winter. Here we have winter and spring


It's been an ice storm here the past few days, yes this is normal for the maritimes. It will start warming a bit in the middle of the month "normally".

Are you guys this disbelieving of all science or just climate science and if so, how do you pick and chose what scientific theories to believe or not?


When it is politically motivated, I question everything.

Science is great. Science is accurate, if done correctly.

This is more emotional than science.


your right...it is emotional...emotional that these people have to be evacuated from their island country
www.earth-policy.org...
and it's emotional here too
www.pri.org...
and here is another island nation under threat
news.bbc.co.uk...

of course, all of this is politically motivated....right?....right?

Just wondering why the lead author of that report wants his name deleted from it? Lots of further comments on that report in climate depot blog.

well, i think for the 4th consecutive year rainfall has fallen where i am.

yesterday we had 5mm of rain!
for all of march.. we had 7.6mm > the average is 45.8mm!
We just went something like 100days without a single drop of rain > a new record!
we broke the hottest day on record temperature too
2 years in a row we didn't even come close to achieving our annual rainfall, and this year we're already 100days without a drop!

its getting hotter too, last year we had the longest heatwave in 70yrs!


Australia started 2013 with a record-breaking heatwave that lasted more than two weeks across many parts of the country. Temperatures were regularly above 48°C, with the highest recorded maximum of 49.6°C at Moomba in South Australia.


your a fool if you do not think the climate is changing, for the worse! It might not be sudden and fatal EVERYWHERE.. but it is changing. I've noticed the difference.. perhaps you should remove your head from your a$$ and pay attention to how YOUR weather has changed in the last 3-4yrs!




The problem is that the climate has always changed, its cyclical, the ice ages we have had in the past weren't due to a lack of greenhouse gasses, they happened then the climate changed again and the they went away. Droughts come and go, some last year some last ten years, some areas are never hit at all, same with cold spells. It's a questionable science when they are measuring the changes in our climate over the course of 100 or 200 years when our plant is over 4 billion years old.

The problem it seems is that some people don't understand that the climate has always been a roller coaster of warming and cooling, thats why we find mammoth teeth and tusks in Oregon, aquatic reptile fossils in the Sahara, and tropical climate fossils in Siberia.

Our planets climate changes, it always has, it always will and some people are naive enough to think we will have any impact on it. There isn't definite proof that humans have expedited the process.

The more the media and our politicians hammer this down our throats the more people are brainwashed into believing it. Feel free, and you can pay my share of whatever taxes they want to levy on us in a false attempt to fix it.

Show me the proof that man caused it and it is not a normal fluctuation of the planet.

You can't.

Fail!

Try again!

So what? It's a UN backed study made with the intent of creating a wealth transfer system through carbon taxation. Their arguments have been drawn into question since they were caught fudging the numbers. Climate change is occurring however taxing us back to the Stone Age will simply tax us back to the Stone Age and accomplish, wait for it, Nothing. It will make the Middle Men in government and the private sector more wealthy than they are now. Sorry UN, we never bought your cr@p and never will. Please peddle your ideas elsewhere.

Climate change has become a political controversy - but it is not a scientific one. While certain factors may seem negligible on the surface (chunks of a glacier falling into the ocean) or even hopeful (surface temperature in one region at a temporary plateau), they are part of a larger picture. When the full body of evidence is considered, it is undeniable that climate change is not only happening, but is set to change our lives as we know them in fairly short order. This doesn't just include the traditional example of losing polar bears due to a lack of arctic ice; climate change will affect economies, agriculture, and security in a major way.

Today, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II released their report, entitled Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability. The report utilized input from 1,729 experts and government reviewers. This number also included nearly 750 primary or contributing authors of scientific papers. Their report concludes that the potential damage from a changing climate is huge, and humanity is currently ill-prepared to deal with the fallout.


Read more at www.iflscience.com...


If proper precautions are not taken in the areas that are in the greatest amount of danger, the report warns that with melting glaciers there will be increased flooding, damaging homes and cities on islands and in coastal areas,such as New York, Tokyo, and Shanghai. Widespread hunger may set in, due to the previously mentioned fluctuations in rainfall. Additionally, more frequent violent storms also threaten property, emergency services, and reliable delivery of electricity.

Not only does this affect the people living there, but also all of the infrastructure and economic viability coming out of those areas. As resources become increasingly scarce and security becomes less of a guarantee, human conflict is expected to rise.

I wonder if you all ever go outside anymore?

Name areas of the country that has normal climate in the last decade????



I go outside all the time, for the past 30 years the climate where I live has never been normal, it changes from year to year always has. Some years our winters are warmer, some years they are colder, some years it rains or snows for than others, and sometimes our summers are warmer or colder than the previous ones. It's how weather works, it's how the climate works, most places are not going to have a "normal climate". If climates were normal then why are the meteorologists wrong the majority of the time?

What I would find hilarious if it weren't so absolutely depressing is that you pick out outliers in the temperatures on that graph from decades prior while ignoring the blue bars becoming the outliers and the red bars the norm.

Wow. so much ignorance on this thread!

So, you guys are saying that you don't believe in scientists. Get your climate data from the bible...that sort of thing?

Global Warming is real and we are causing it. Just about every scientist on Earth agrees on that.

Yet, what you guys will focus on is Carbon Taxes and Al Gore. LOL When it should be focusing on what we should do about it...then we can have a debate about the pro's and con's of carbon tax and whether it benefits citizens or not.


Please go give this comment to the Chinese "higher ups".

Then come back and tell me what they said.

Until China lowers their pollution "alot" we are just urinating in the wind.

We can study till our brains fall out, talk until our voices are gone, but it won't change a damn thing.

One thing it will change is the population of the "west" being brainwashed by propaganda saying we can "fix it.


China is working on cutting back on their pollution and going to renewable resources.

Sure they are. Building a coal fired electrical plant annually will certainly fix their emissions and result in the salvation of the entire human race. As if.

why would I try again to convince you, when you have already said I can't?...it would be an act of futility. but, you could go live in Beijing, China with your family, they have normal earth fluctuations of pollution there, or move and live next to a fracking site, or a coal burning power plant....they would all have normal fluctuations of earth climate at those locations too

**ENOUGH**

We are not here to discuss each other. We are here to discuss the topic at hand.

Remember that? Here's a hint:

Climate change already impacting "all continents" according to new international report.

Remember that one? Anyone?

I suggest we get back to that, not each other.

Do not reply to this post.
